750ml bottle. Thanks Craig! Poured into a mini-snifter 8/9/2014.
A- Dark ruby-copper body, with a half finger white head with fair retention. Nothing special looking... but luckily that's the least of it.
S- Goodness gracious, this is what Consecration smells like, but even better. Tart currants, cherries, dark fruits, raisins with a lovely lactic tartness, red vinous character and some oak. One of the most complex American wild ales I've ever had.
F- Similar to the nose; lots of dark fruits, cherries, currants, lacto and vinegar along with a nice oak and grape must. I'm not surprised Vinnie and Toronado would come up with something like this. Excellent.
M- Medium in body, smooth and rich yet with a nice peppy carbonation. Excellent stuff. Finish is currants and cherries galore.
O- Fantastic stuff. I'm amazed I got to try this one; I would never have otherwise. Again, this is a work of art by Vinnie and co; comes highly recommended.

This beer reminds me of Consecration at its finest moment. There is a bit more brightness and effervescence as well as a more rounded sweetness to balance the vinegary tartness. The fruit shines bright with a deep dark unripened cherry flavor. There is a richness that this blend provides while still being quenching. The blend is so well balanced that I really have little to add other than being fortunate enough to try this beer.

750 ml bottle into a teku.
dark ruby red color with a great foamy head. smell of currants , cherries. taste starts out with a big amount tartness...cherry flavor is prominent right after and the finish is very wet and has a lingering fruity taste that coats your mouth. quite complex and you can tell its a blend. body is medium and carbonation is medium as well.
overall blows consecration out of the water, which is what its reminiscent of. excellent.
